Projects of the General Archive of the Carmelites
Thanks to the contributions of the Conference of Italian Bishops (CEI), destined for archives and historical libraries belonging to Dioceses, Congregations and Religious Orders, the General Archive of the Order in 2018 was able to carry out, the project of digitizing nine manuscripts of the "General Postulation" Section, vis à vis the series "Vitae servorum Dei Carmelitarum",
produced by the postulator Serafino Maria Potenza (18th century), containing a total of 10.514 cards. The photo-reproductions will soon be available in the Archive and, in the near future, also on the portal of the CEI "BeWeB" (Beni Ecclesiastici on the Web), in support of the electronic inventory that is being composed. With the contributions of the CEI scheduled for 2019, it is hoped to complete the digitization of the remaining seven Potenza Codes and to restore six parchments from the Diplomatic Section, ranging from the twelfth to the fifteenth century.
